No, please, ramble on as you say. It's always a pleasure to get the personal perspective. It's funny, but even for someone like yourself who started seeing the Dead in '70, to read that you wished you had seen them from the beginning. Well, i read something like that and all i think is i wished i had seen them even as 'late' as '79 or '80, but as it is i didn't first see the Dead until '86 with the Hampton shows, though i caught JGB as early as '84. However, taken in perspective with your own experience, dude, you were 'there' so to speak. But i guess it just lays it all out in perspective. I mean, that indescribable nostalgia for lost moments and opportunities. It's the thrill of living on this ball of dirt, the whole soup of experience. We take what we can, we taste it, we digest it, we take it to the next experience. Thank you for the post and for sharing some of your thoughts, comments, and memories of Jerry and the band.
